What we do


We’re not interested in growth…

…but we are interested in what makes your people tick, how they learn, engage and deliver, how they align with your vision and aims and in understanding their fears and hopes. In short, how to make them happy. And all this has very little to do with pay and benefits but everything to do with leadership, creating the right environment, listening, positive influencing and helping make work feel like a really good place to be. What’s more, just a small amount of happiness can go a long way. A real difference is likely to be felt almost immediately and longer term the benefits are even more impressive.


Why Sykes Fairbairn?

Because we understand how to make ‘happy’ work. We won’t always tell you what you want to hear and we will hold up a mirror to you and your organisation that may be challenging, but by working with focus and empathy, we will together provide a direction and strategy that will make a positive impact on the happiness and growth of your organisation

We’ve been in business for 20 years and worked with a wide range of organisations in the commercial and not-for-profit sectors. We have a wealth of experience at all levels and a proven track record of success.
